St. Bernard is also known as a native Dane. However, its history begins in Switzerland, where they became widespread in the middle of the 19th century. Their popularity was so great that only two-color large dogs began to be in demand. Few people were interested in tricolors, which affected their number. Basically, this breed was obtained by crossing. These impressive size working dogs fully live up to their name. In weight, they can reach up to 100 kg, and in height – up to 1 meter. Saint Bernards are kind, friendly dogs, very careful about children. They are very loyal to their owner and are easy to train. In Denmark, during heavy storms and snowfalls, they have always demonstrated their best qualities and abilities.
